Liang Eng Hwa (simplified Chinese: 连荣华; traditional Chinese: 連榮華; pinyin: Lián Róng Huá; born 20 March 1964) is politician from the People's Action Party (PAP). He is currently one of the 4 Members of Parliament (MPs) representing the Holland-Bukit Timah GRC in Singapore. He is a Buddhist.
Liang started serving as an MP in 2006 after a walkover victory in the Singapore 2006 General Election as one of five members of the Group Representation Constituency (GRC). He was the MP in charge of Zhenghua district within the GRC during his first term. In 2011, he contested again representing the team from the PAP which was led by Minister Vivian Balakrishnan together with Christopher de Souza and Sim Ann in a reduced-size (from 5 MPs to 4) Holland-Bukit Timah GRC. They faced heavy challenges from Team-A of the Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) which was represented by Ang Yong Guan, Tan Jee Say, Michelle Lee and Vincent Wijeysingha. The PAP team managed to win 60.1% of the votes against their rookie competitors. Liang was officially declared as an MP for his second term on 9 May 2011.
